Gigi Hadid is swearing off Mykonos after the vacation rental she was sharing with sisters Bella Hadid and Alana Hadid (pictured right) was ransacked and robbed last week.

The girls were partying it up in Greece to celebrate older sister Alana's birthday on July 27, but they returned home one night to find their pad was broken into and valuables, including jewelry, handbags, sunglasses and clothing, were all stolen.

TMZ reports that they swiftly called the police, but were disapointed when authorities didn't make the robbery, which they think could've been an inside job, a priority.

While Gigi posted a slew of bikini-clad beach photos having fun in the sun with her sisters during the trip, she also took to social media to make it clear she wouldn't be going back to Mykonos after the scary incident.

"Mykonos film in," the supermodel captioned a mirror selfie on July 30. "PS(A). Don't let insta fool u. Got robbed. Never going back lol. Wouldn't recommend. Spend your money elsewhere."

Gigi, Bella and Alana cut their vacation short after the robbery and chartered a private plane to get out of Mykonos.

Their father, Mohamed Hadid, told TMZ the girls were "traumatized" by the incident, but, "nobody got hurt. Thank god."

"Sisters Hadid. Mykonos 2019," Gigi captioned another sibling pic with the fourth Hadid sister, Marielle Hadid (right).

'Flip or Flop' star Christina Hall doing 'parasite cleanse' due to 'abnormal amount of gut bacteria'

Just five weeks after finding out she was suffering from "mercury and lead poisoning," Christina Hall has discovered she has "an abnormal amount of gut bacteria."

On Monday, Jan. 30, the "Flip or Flop" star told her Instagram followers that she did "an expensive, super extensive panel" that tests for a variety of body toxins. 

"It tests for like 100 different types of molds, metals and bacterias, and my highest level of toxicity came back as an abnormal amount of gut bacteria, which is like SIBO [small intestine bacteria overgrowth] and also parasites. So those are my biggest conditions," she said. "I have a little bit of heavy metals going on too, so I'm on a cleanse and a parasite cleanse."

The HGTV star can feel the cleanse "definitely working," but she's bracing for a rough stretch.

"I heard it gets worse before it gets better," Christina said. "It's pretty brutal but I'm hoping at the end I feel good."

This is just latest in a string of health challenges that have come Christina's way of late.

In late December, she revealed on Instagram that she had "mercury and lead poisoning," and she suspected her career was a factor.  The poisoning, she believed, was "most likely from all the gross houses I've been in (all the bad flips)."

Prior to that, she wondered if her breast implants were making her exhausted. 

"Some of my issues include: Inflammation, autoimmune issues (Hashimoto's disease, PCOS, Raynaud's syndrome), unexplained skin rashes, joint and muscle pain, dry eyes, GI issues, SIBO, acid reflux, brain fog, hormone imbalances, swollen lymph nodes and adrenal fatigue. I test positive for ANA," she said. "I'm gluten free and mostly dairy free. I had all my under eye filler dissolved as it was causing an inflammatory reaction as well. For now just working on detoxing and positive mind set."

As part of her health journey, the "Christina On the Coast" star also recently dissolved filler in her face.

Money matters

Pamela Anderson makes a stunningly low paycheck for 'Baywatch' residuals: 'It's a crime'

"Baywatch" was once the most-watched television series in the world, and it continues to be viewed all around the world via syndication on streaming services, TV and cable networks. You'd think the stars of the show would be rolling in the dough with residual checks, but you would be wrong — at least in Pamela Anderson's case. 

In fact, despite Amazon purchasing the rights to the show in the United States, Australia and Canada in 2019, Pam is only get $4,000 a year in residual checks.

While promoting her Netflix documentary, "Pamela: A Love Story," the actress and her son Brandon Lee spoke of her "Baywatch" pay discrepancies, something her son says is criminal.

"When I go back and I even look at past deals and residual checks people would be shocked to find out how people really took advantage of her and took advantage of a young girl making a bad deal on a big show, and she was the biggest star in the world at the time," he told "Extra." "I think a lot of people made a lot of money off that, people are going to have to have their day when we come knocking… when she makes $4,000 a year off of 'Baywatch?' That's a crime."

Along with David Hasselhoff, Pamela was among the most notable names to star on the beachside drama, having portrayed lifeguard C.J. Parker for six years.

"When a big company like [Amazon] buys the rights to the 'Baywatch' box set and she doesn't get a dollar? You tell me if that's right," he adds. "She is 'Baywatch.'"

Pam, however, said she's not really worried about the money.

"I always say, 'You can't take me away from me,'" the 'Barb Wire" actress said. "I'll always find my way."

Still, Brandon argues that his mother deserves to "get what's right."

"If its your work and your face and your image, you deserve something," he said. "You couldn't get away with that today. There's no actress in the world that that would happen to today."

Studio support

DC Comics boss discusses Zachary Levi's superhero future following 'anti-vaxx' tweet

Amid backlash for a social media post that many interpreted as anti-vaxx, DC Comics is continuing to stand by Zachary Levi, the star or the "Shazam" franchise.

Last week, Zach publicly came out pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, and many immediately labeled him an "anti-vaxxer."

The situation began after Moorhouse Group CEO Lyndon Wood asked in a tweet, "Do you agree or not, that Pfizer is a real danger to the world?" Zach replied, "Hardcore agree." Pfizer, of course, was one of the main companies to roll out a COVID vaccine in 2021. 

On Monday, Jan. 30, James Gunn, the new co-head of DC Studios, addressed Zach's tweet and future with the studio. 

"Just real simply: Actors and filmmakers that I work with are going to say things that I agree with and things that I don't agree with," he said, according to Variety. "And that's going to happen. I don't have a list of things that somebody should say because of what I think. And you know, I can't be changing my plans all the time because an actor says something that I don't agree with."

He added, "By the same token, if somebody's doing something morally reprehensible then that's a different story. We have to take all that stuff into account. It's a balance. It's modern world and it's a different place."

Zach's tweet comes less than two months before the release of "Shazam! Fury of the Gods." 

While the 42-year-old hasn't necessarily doubled down on his Pfizer criticism, he attempted to clarify his stance, posting a link to Pfizer's $2.3 billion fraud settlement from 2009. 

"Just one example of what I'm referring to…," he added.

Changed perspective

Antonio Banderas details how 2017 heart attack shaped his newfound outlook

In a very real way, Antonio Banderas is thankful for the heart attack he suffered in 2017. 

"It made me appreciate life in a completely different way and in a much more powerful way. It changed my life entirely and completely for good," he said on Britain's "This Morning."

The "Mask of Zorro" star began experiencing chest pains during a workout in 2017, and he later found out that it was a heart attack. 

From that moment on, he was a changed man.

With hindsight being 20/20, Antonio wishes he was more appreciative about life when he was younger, something he now hopes to imprint on the younger generation.

"After Covid, kids were asking themselves 'why can't we go to school,' it was there in the environment, we took a chance to reflect," he said. "Kids, they know more than we think. They understand and it's good to reflect with them on these issues." 

"What they are learning at the end is to praise life, how wonderful life is. Life is a beautiful thing, we have only one and we have to take care of it," he said.

Earlier in the week, the 62-year-old actor also spoke about his health with The Radio Times.

"I had a heart attack six years ago. It probably was one of the best things that happened in my life. It was like putting glasses on and seeing what was important," Antonio said. "I came back to Spain and started looking at my professional life from a different point of view."

The heart attack, he added, was a "turning point" that prompted his decision to quit smoking. 

"Since my heart attack, I'm looking only for the pleasure of acting. That's it," he said. "I don't care about anything else. For me, life starts when somebody says, 'Action!' – or when the curtain comes up."

'Yellowstone' star who plays Rip 'unrecognizable' during Disney World trip

Just call him the incognito Dutton of Disney.

Cole Hauser is known to many for his rugged looks and dark beard as Rip Wheeler in Paramount's "Yellowstone." However, in a family picture posted from Disney World on Monday, Jan. 30, Cole looked almost nothing like his famous character. In fact, fans said he was "unrecognizable."

"Did anyone recognize you?" one fan commented on Cole Instagram picture, which showed him with a trimmed brownish-red beard, a vast departure from his look on the Dutton Ranch, where Rip is the top ranch hand. In the new real-life snap, Cole donned a baseball and polo shirt, not exactly a cowboy hat and duster.

"Way to go incognito Rip," one follower said of the Rip-less look. Another applauded his ability to "blend in."

"Is this the REAL Cole Hauser?," another questioned. Added another, "You are almost unrecognizable! Great disguise you got there."

In addition to the family photo — which included Cole's wife, Cynthia Daniel, and their sons, Ryland, 18, and Colt, 14 — the former "Good Will Hunting" star posted a video from a roller coaster. Naturally, a slew of followers spoke about the "Train Station," a clear reference to "Yellowstone."

While the majority of Cole's 1.5 million Instagram followers commented with well wishes, a smattering of others criticized Disney and Cole for choosing to spend his day at the Florida theme park.

"Cole – so many of us are not supporting Disney anymore – please research the programming and wokeness they have going on," one said. Another proclaimed, "Get your last ride in, Woke is shutting that down."

For his part, Cole used his Instagram caption to thank the Disney staff for the "great time" and "wonderful experience."

One could argue that "Yellowstone" is more of a roller coaster than Space Mountain!

Health concern

Hulk Hogan has lost feeling in his legs after back surgery: It's 'pretty serious'

Hulk Hogan, one of the most popular professional wrestlers of all time, has apparently lost feeling in his lower body after a surgical procedure.

Former Olympian Kurt Angle said he recently spoke to the "Hogan Knows Best" alum about his health, and it wasn't happy news.

"Hogan had his back surgery again. He had the nerves cut from his lower body. He can't feel his lower body, so he has to use his cane to walk around," Kurt, who won gold in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Olympics, said on "The Kurt Angle Show." 

Hulk, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is walking with the assistance of a cane.

"I thought he was using the cane because he has pain in his back. He doesn't have any pain. He has nothing at all. He can't feel anything. So now he can't feel his legs, so he has to walk with a cane," Kurt, a WWE Hall of Famer, said. "That's pretty serious, man. I mean, I really feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up."

Interestingly, Hulk, 69, appeared briefly on the 30th anniversary show of "Monday Night Raw" on Jan. 23. Kurt said the broadcast didn't show the severity of Hulk's situation.

"I mean, if you're gonna kick off the show, the 30th anniversary of Raw, [it] should be Hulk Hogan. He's the name and face of the company," Kurt said. "He's the guy that revolutionized pro wrestling. I have so much respect for him."

The "Rocky III" star  — who spoke to Kurt backstage at "Raw" — has yet to comment publicly on the claims.

Pamela Anderson's ex-husband of 12 days leaving her $10M in his will

Pamela Anderson's blink-and-you-missed-it "ex-husband" is planning to line her pockets after he passes.

"Batman" movie producer Jon Peters and Pam had a wedding ceremony in 2020, but they never filed any legal paperwork. Twelve days later, the duo called off the marriage but maintained they'd remain friends.

Jon is now putting his money where his mouth is, claiming he's leaving Pamela $10 million in his will.

"I will always love Pamela, always in my heart," he told Variety. "As a matter of fact, I left her $10 million in my will. And she doesn't even know that. Nobody knows that. I'm just saying it for the first time with you. I probably shouldn't be saying it. So that's for her, whether she needs it or not."

Jon is reportedly worth $200 million. 

"He's great and has been a huge influence on my life," Pamela said of the "A Star is Born" producer. "I love him to death."

News of the will details come just days before the "Baywatch" actress is set to release her memoir, "Love, Pamela." In a recent chat with Howard Stern, Pam revealed she gained 25 pounds while penning the book.

"It was crazy, but I had a physical reaction to telling my story," Pam said. "It was almost like I was hanging on to something — It was a protective … my puffy suit of armor. I don't know what it was — I was thinking it was some kind of protection." 

She's since lost the weight, but writing the book "took its toll" emotionally.

Beach pass

Hilary Duff makes surprising 'Laguna Beach' confession

Hilary Duff never got caught up in the drama of "Laguna Beach." In fact, despite singing the MTV show's theme song, she never really watched it.

"I was not a huge [fan]," she said on the "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" aftershow on Thursday, Jan. 26. "I just … I didn't watch."

The "Lizzie McGuire" alum explained that her schedule didn't jibe with the airing of the show, which ran from 2004-2006.

"In a moment in time when you could not record TV shows, I was on tour," she said. "So, I missed a huge chunk of, like, big things that people talk about that I didn't get to experience."

Still, she loves that her song "Come Clean" will always be linked to the popular aughts reality show.

"My song was, like, the theme song, and I loved that," she said. "I did love that because, I mean, I [basically] lived at MTV for a while."

Not only did Hilary lend her voice to "Laguna Beach," she also sang the theme song for MTV's "My Super Sweet 16," which ran for 10 seasons from 2005 to 2017. 

However, the "How I Met Your Father" star didn't exactly fatten her pockets from "Come Clean" and "Sweet Sixteen."

"I definitely didn't get super rich by them using it as the theme, and I am not going to pretend to know what went on in the background for them to use it," Hilary said of MTV securing the rights to the track. "But they used it."

She added, "They love me over there. I don't know how much money I made from it. I don't think a lot. But maybe Disney [the owner of Hollywood Records] did."

Scary accident

Jay Leno breaks collarbone, ribs, kneecaps in motorcycle crash

Just months after suffering third-degree burns on his face, chest and hands, Jay Leno has suffered another health setback.

The comedian told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he crashed on his motorcycle on Jan. 17, which resulted in several broken bones.

"I've got a broken collarbone. I've got two broken ribs. I've got two cracked kneecaps," Jay said.

In the newest incident, the former "Tonight Show" host was testing a 1940 Indian motorcycle and noticed the scent of leaking gas.

"So I turned down a side street and cut through a parking lot, and unbeknownst to me, some guy had a wire strung across the parking lot but with no flag hanging from it," Jay said. "So, you know, I didn't see it until it was too late. It just clothesline me and, boom, knocked me off the bike. The bike kept going, and you know how that works out."

Jay, 72, admitted he kept the accident quiet because of all the publicity his November 2022 incident got. 

"You know, after getting burned up, you get that one for free," he said. "After that, you're Harrison Ford, crashing airplanes. You just want to keep your head down (laughs)."

Just two months ago, Jay was working on his 1907 White Steam Car with pal Dave Killackey  when it caught fire.

"The fuel line was clogged so I was underneath it. It sounded clogged and I said, 'Blow some air through the line,' and so [Dave] did …  And suddenly, boom, I got a face full of gas. And then the pilot light jumped and my face caught on fire," Jay told Today.

Jay ended up undergoing skin grafts and was treated in a hyperbaric chamber.

A noted car guru, it's estimated that Jay owns about 180 cars and 160 motorcycles. His car collection is reportedly valued at around $52 million. His love of cars is often showcased on the CNBC series "Jay Leno's Garage."
